Adding modules

Adding modules

  • Add modules by clicking the small icon on the Modules page

  • Module name must match its name in the LON db

  • Select the type of the module

  • Select location of the module

  • Check the checkbox to create the

    module’s I/O-objects

    automatically


Adding i o objects

Adding I/O-objects

  • Add I/O-objects by clicking on the small icon on the I/O-objects page

  • Select the type of the object

  • Select location of the object

  • Select the Control system that the object belongs to

  • Select device type of the object

  • Select the number of objects to be

    created


Adding modules i o objects

Adding modules & I/O-objects

  • If the exact amount of modules is known, then add modules and create I/O-objects automatically

  • Otherwise add needed amount of I/O-objects, then later add needed modules (without I/O-objects) and attach the I/O-objects to the modules by clicking the Module field of the object and selecting the appropriate module


I o objects process view

I/O objects – process view

  • Set I/O-object positios by double-clicking the appropriate field or by right-clicking -> Set Position

  • Select I/O-objects

  • Right-click -> Select System

  • Go to Process view

  • Double-click on FAHU1

  • Arrange objects by dragging them


I o object configuration

I/O-object configuration

  • Double-click an object in process view (active object is yellow)

  • Click the Configure-button

  • Select appropriate behaviour type from the drop down menu

  • Adjust the parameters by double-clicking the Value field

  • Click Save-button to save changes


I o object configuration1

I/O-object configuration

  • When working in offline mode the changes are saved only to the LXP-file and a red downward arrow appears on the object

  • To update the changes to the module PCT needs to be in online mode and the module installed to the LON database


Creating bindings with pct

Creating bindings with PCT

  • You can create bindings between objects simply clicking on an object’s nvo and moving the cursor to an object’s nvi while mouse button is pressed

  • This will only create the binding in PCT. To create the binding in the actual database, you need to use a network management tool (NL220)

  • It is the user’s responsibility to make sure that the bindings in PCT actually match the bindings in the LON database


Creating bindings with pct1

Creating bindings with PCT

  • Use PCT to create a bindings file to easily create/remove bindings in the LON database

  • Tools -> Create bindings File

  • Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+B

  • Right-click on the process view window and select Create Bindings File

  • Select control systems included in the bindings file

  • Select folder to save bindings file


Removing bindings with pct

Removing bindings with PCT

  • Right-click on a binding and select Remove

  • Create a removed bindings file by selectingTools -> Create Removed Bindings File or use keyboard shortcut Ctrl+R

  • Removed_Bindings.csv is created in the same folder with the LXP-file

  • All removed bindings in history are added to the file

  • History is cleared when the removed bindings file is created


Bindings file

Bindings file

// Binding 4

ALL.DDC1M1.nvoDOswitch[0],ALL.DDC1M1.nviDIswitch[1],,,,,,,,,


Internal bindings

Internal bindings

  • A ’binding’ inside a single module

  • Can only be used with a PID-object and an AI- or AO-object that are in the same module

  • Created by configuring PID-object’s parameters, not with network management tool

Alarm bindings

Alarm bindings

  • All modules with alarming capabilities have special network variables for alarm bindings: nviAlarm, nviAlarmPos, nvoAlarm and nvoAlarmPos

  • Alarms are always forwarded from nviAlarm(Pos) to nvoAlarm(Pos)

  • Alarm bindings must be done manually and are easiest to do by modifying a bindings file

  • In a bigger project the alarm bindings can be done with different topologies, see Alarm Bindings example

Online offline modes

Online/Offline modes

  • When configuring objects in offline mode no changes are actually done to the modules

  • When changing a configuration a small red arrow appears on the object to indicate that the changes have not been downloaded to the module yet

  • Downloading/uploading only available in online mode

  • To enable online mode LNS Server must be used

  • When LNS Server is started you can change between online and offline modes with the small icon in PCT


Online mode

Online mode

When LNS Server is connected to the LON database click on icon

Values of the selected object’s network variables are shown


Online mode1

Online mode

  • Download/upload object configurations (including object position)

  • Enable/disable manual mode of I/O-objects

  • Input values to input network variables

  • Download/upload module configurations

  • Read module Neuron Ids & software version

  • Read/Write module network variables

  • Create LNI LON-db export for COBA Server


Commissioning

Commissioning

  • Install all modules and download software to them

    • Make sure you have the latest NXE and XIF files

    • Module LED indication

  • Use the marking functionality of I/O-objects in PCT

    • Tested OK, Tested Not OK, Not Tested

    • Connected

    • Try to fix smaller problems right away

  • When creating/removing bindings to/from the live LON db make sure NL220 is online

  • Proceed logically i.e. one control system at a time


Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

  • Check connections

  • Test functions in manual mode

  • Check I/O-object configurations

  • Check bindings

  • Example: Temperature reading is false

    • Check jumper position inside module

    • Check configuration (Pt1000, Active 0-10V, Range)

    • Check connections. If an active measurement is used than make sure G0 is correct


Project management

Project management

  • Make sure that LXP and LON db are consistent with the system

  • Remember backups!

  • Use only one copy of LXP and LON db as it is very time consuming to ”combine” LXPs, and even more time consuming to check for differences between LON db and live system

  • Be extra careful when operating with bindings in live system

  • Labeling all modules, field devices and cabling can save a lot of trouble later


Hands on exercises

Hands-on exercises

  • Lighting control

  • Constant control

  • Exhaust fan

  • Parking area exhaust fan

  • Simple AHU

  • Constant speed FAHU with a heat recovery wheel

  • Variable speed FAHU with a HRW

  • Chiller system with secondary pumps
